IPhone X release supply may slim as Apple refines TrueDepth

According to a new report from Nikkei, which reiterates points made last month by the WSJ, iPhone X suppliers are continuing to struggle to produce the 3D sensor components used for Apple's new TrueDepth camera system. The TrueDepth camera system is also needed for Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting options when taking selfies with the front-facing camera.

Report comes from Nikkei where their source is an unnamed "tech executive familiar with iPhone X production".

Ever since the iPhone X was announced, it has consistently been reported that the handset will be in short supply for several months after it's released. Many reports have actually referred to this issue as the major production bottleneck for iPhone X production.

"...if iPhone X availability issues persist beyond November 15 and into the holiday season, we could see some frustrated iPhone users consider switching to other offerings", wrote Toni Sacconaghi, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co, in a client note. Consequently it might take longer before Apple can the iPhone X can be produced in mass quantities to meet demand. It definitely seems a good portion of Apple iPhone fans have skipped on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus smartphones and are instead holding ding out and patiently waiting for the iPhone X's release. If Apple makes no changes, the iPhone X will be available for pre-orders starting on Friday, October 27th, which is just two weeks from tomorrow. The 3D sensor system empowers astonishing features like Face ID biometric security for unlocking the handset and for making payments as well as the Animoji. Specifically, problems are still arising with the iPhone X's dot projector, the component responsible for illuminating a user's face with 30,000 infrared dots to create a depth map of a user's face.
